As Easton was working out the technical problems of producing a superior aluminum Baseball bat, the company's founder died from cancer on December 31, 1972, leaving his son Jim in charge. At the time, the company was making Easton baseball bats under a private-label arrangement with another company. Easton insisted on having its name printed somewhere on the bat to ensure that its work was recognized and prevent the customer from building a reputation due to Easton Baseball Bats quality then later dropping Easton in favor of a cheaper source. When the other company refused, Easton launched its own Baseball bat brand in the mid-1970s and sold it through an independent distributor, Curley-Bates Company. By the end of the decade, Easton had developed a superior product of easton Baseball Bats that was able to command a premium price.
Though Easton enjoyed tremendous growth with its hockey products, it also remained in the forefront of aluminum softball and Easton baseball bats technology. In the early 1990s, however, the company became a victim of its own success when it introduced a titanium softball bat that performed so well that softball associations banned it, maintaining that the bat was dangerous and would add too much of an offensive component to the game. Despite this setback, Easton continued its innovations in bat design. In 1997, it launched the Redline series, introducing the first Scandium Easton baseball bats to the marketplace. Two years later, Easton offered the ConneXion series of Easton Baseball bats, the first two-piece system that significantly reduced vibration and offered a more forgiving sweet spot. To round out its Easton baseball bats product lines, Easton began producing wooden Easton baseball bats, which remained the only material allowed in Major League Baseball. The company's use of wood came by way of expansion. In 1999, Easton acquired Stix Baseball Inc., an Orlando, Florida-based wooden bat manufacturer. Easton also became involved in a related sport, developing bats for the game of cricket. Easton makes different size barrels on there baseball bats. Some of the easton barrels are 2 1'4 baseball bats and other are 2 5/8 Baseball Bats. Easton also has different weight drops on there baseball bats like a -10 and a minus 9 Baseball bats for youths.
